The brief called for an animated story machine outputting children's story pages.

Really cool. Like the animation and would love to see more.

The fire looks really nice, are you using particles?

OMG....just watched the robot punch animation on your website....fell off my chair laughing....just brilliant with the sound too. Maybe it's the bottle of wine I'm tasting this evening ;) but it sure hit my chuckle bone.

Hi Riki, Hrgiger, Mega Maniac and RAZ. Just got back online.
First up, thanks very much for your responses.
Fire looks so real because it is real. It is some footage shot on a black background and composited in Lightwave.

RAZ, I'm glad you enjoyed the robot punch clip, it is kind of hypnotic, almost as hypnotic as your Avatar...LOL

RAZ, Your right about showing it to your 8 year old son, I have two, 11 and 15 and boy are they a tough audience.

Actually I was thinking the fire was real. It made me remember a video over at dvgarage.com where they recommend compositing.
